UBS @ the Tate

If you happen to be cruising London Town for the bank holiday weekend, head to the beautiful Tate Modern for their free exhibition, UBS Openings: The Long Weekend 2009.

Not only are all events, films, music and performance free, the theme is 'Do It Yourself' - inspired by Arte Povera and Post-minimalism (love love Damien Hirst!)

Don't want to miss Jennifer West's Skate the Sky Performance (Friday 22 May / Turbine Hall / 19.00–20.30)... This talented US artist creates films, without cameras by manipulating the film process. She uses everyday objects (like lithium hot springs water, Jack Daniels and pot for the first example Naked Deep Creek Hot Springs of her 'Cameraless' series) to coat the film strip, which she then exposes to light pulses to create the imagery which is projected to form the installation.

Skate the Sky will see a new film created, live in the Turbine Hall, uniting an unlikely mix of ink, film and skateboarding, in a performance on the ramp. Wish we were there!!

We're also excited about Lucia Fischer's The Holga Diaries @ China Heights Gallery, Sydney. Cool chick, with lots of back alley stalking and wild Lomo prints. Reminds us of winter mornings on the Manly Ferry. Enjoy xx
